Anyway, Qt seems to be gaining ground so I installed Qt, and me and my team started researching this nice new technology. I have never been fond of programming in C++, maybe I have changed, but programming in Qt/C++ have been a breeze so far. Qt is a high quality piece of software and something not to be ignored.
Working on Canola and other internal projects during the last year have brought a lot of experience to the team. We have learned that our investment in MVC, our plugin system and the Edje  canvas interface description language have born fruits, and is something that we cannot do without; I'm still amazed how much we completed in basically a years time.
So Qt seems to be an important player in Nokia's future, atleast for the Internet Tablet, so to be better aligned with that, we researched the viability of porting Edje to Qt, and are very proud of making the announcement that the most important parts are already there and released under the same license model as Qt.
Three guys from the team are present at the aKademy conference and have been giving a lecture on Edje and our QEdje project. The presentation went very well, and the audience seemed interested. Aaron Seigo went so far to look at implementing Plasma  objects (so-called plasmoids) using QEdje. How that went I don't know, but I guess we will see shortly.
It can be found here: "QEdje Presentation" (7z compressed) at the project site. A high quality version of the video is also available.
QEdje is still running a bit slow on the Internet Tablet and we have been writing various profiles which we have shared with the Qt developers, showing that we will need some heavy optimizations before we can write applications like Canola and Carman using Qt + QEdje. The Qt developers have been really friendly and paid attention to our requirements, and to make my day, Andreas Aardal Hanssen announced  at the conference that they are working hard on improving the raster graphics path in Qt and that it is already 40 times faster in some situations. Now that is what I needed to hear! Tusind Takk!
